AceShowbiz - Jim Carrey came to Kathy Griffin's defense over the controversial Tyler Shields photo shoot which saw her holding a replica of a bloody severed Donald Trump head. "I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times -- because that line is not real," he told Entertainment Tonight.
"If you step out into that spotlight and you're doing the crazy things that [Trump is] doing," the actor continued, "we're the last line of defense. And really, the comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing. It's impossible to get away from it."
"I had a dream the other night I was playing golf with Donald Trump," he said. "I was standing beside him with a club in my hand, and I was considering my options when I suddenly woke up." He added, "It was one of those dreams where you just want to get back to sleep so you can finish it, you know?"
In a separate chat with Extra, Carrey said, "I see that everybody's a hypocrite because everybody's imagined themselves standing there with his head, maybe at least half the country. We're in a tough spot. It's a very divided world. We're sitting here watching this nonsense happen and people like Sean Spicer come out and talk about it like we're kindergartners. You know, covering for the President is like putting makeup on a melanoma - not only unsightly but it's dangerous."
In a premiere of his new Showtime comedy series, the comedian/actor even jokingly told Griffin to "hold up a severed leg as well."
